CoverGirl Jumbo Gloss Balm: Haute Pink Twist

Hey there!

Today's post is a review on a CoverGirl lip product: the Jumbo Gloss Balm in Haute Pink Twist. I own another colour from the collection, Ballet Twist, and it has served me well. The formula worked well with my lips and I was eager to try more from the line.

As usual, packaging must be mentioned. I quite like the packaging if this balm, the twist-up crayon function is handy and it's easy to slip into a small crossbody. The coloured lid is also useful for identifying the product colour.

The balm has a pointed tip, perfect for filling in your lips accurately. It has a subtle olive oil scent; it may not sound like the best scent but it reminds me of a very moisturising product, which luckily this is. The colour glides on well but beware if you have chapped or flaky lips. I like to apply a layer of lip balm before applying this balm to ensure that my lips are hydrated and the colour won't sink into the lines on my lips.

I'll admit, I was a bit intimidated by the colour at first sight because it just seemed so bright. After the first try, I fell in love with it! It's a nice Barbie-esque pink with a slight blue undertone and an actually wearable colour. Pigmentation would be light to medium.

CoverGirl, unfortunately, is not available in Hong Kong, which is a pity because I would really like to try their nail polishes, specially the Hunger Games line. Anyways, if you have a chance to try out these balms I would definitely recommend it. 

How are you guys? The holidays are coming and up, and I'm excited to have a break and do more DIYs. I'm thinking a small dish for keys etc. but clay doesn't always agree with me...

That's all for today and I'll see you next week x
